What is a nasal pillow device?

Similar to a nasal mask, a nasal pillow device seals the nose area at the edge of the patient’s nostril. Unlike nasal masks that cover the entire nose. It comes in different pillow sizes to allow for a better fitting.

Nasal pillow devices are best used by individuals with OSA who usually lie on their stomach or on their sides. This device is also recommended for people with facial hair.
